Moline man donates money to police department in honor of late wife

MOLINE - They say love can make you do some incredible things. A Moline man would agree with that. Doug Kaiser donated money to the Moline Police Department to help it buy a K-9 officer.

"Boy she'd see somebody walk a dog, she say what kind of dog is that. Let's talk to them," said Doug Kaiser. 

When you ask Doug kaiser about his favorite memories of his late wife Anne Kaiser.
They all have one thing in common: Animals,

"She's bring anything home. A cat even though I was allergic to them. I found her out front one morning and I said what's that cat doing here and she's like I feed it everyday. I said oh, wonderful just what we need a cat hanging around when we got 3 dogs in the house," said Kaiser.

Doug says Anne's goal was to make sure none were left out on the streets or at the pound.

"If the city would allow more without a kennel license, this yard would be full," said Kaiser.

"She'd probably be the little old lady with 19 dogs, 5 cats and a couple rabbits if she could of," said Kaiser.

Since Anne's passing, Doug's given money to the humane society, but wanted to do more. That's when he says Anne visited him in a dream and told him what to do.

"She told me subliminally or how ever you want to put it that this would be a good thing to do. And I'm like okay...That's the reason i did it," said Kaiser.

Doug donated money to the Moline police department so they could purchase a K-9 dog. 
That's what Anne would've wanted and the department couldn't be more grateful. 

"It's not often a person walks into the front door of the police department offering to donate money to a specific program, " said Moline Police Captain Trevor Fisk.

"You can tell that Mr. Kaiser genuinely missed and loved his wife and wanted to honor her, " said Fisk. 

As long as Doug is alive, he's going to continue to carry her mission to look out for animals. 

"I guess that's the reason why we are true soulmates because our love for animals," said Kaiser.

The Kaisers have two dogs of their own. Doug says he wouldn't hesitate to make another donation if the police department ever needs another K-9.
